gdr_11,Imagine a judge telling you that unless you rid your yard of a rock painted with the Stars and Bars that they will take away the custody of your child. This is the New America under the Democrats, and every petty official now feels empowered to act out their deepest socialist fantasies at the expense of the public.
To quote JOE PAGS, who has a talk show each weekday afternoon here in SATX on WOAI radio, that DY JUDGE "can pick a cheek & kiss it".
IF I lived in NY (That thought in 2021 makes me GAG.), I would put up a lighted (with surveillance cameras) 30' flagpole & fly a 10x10' BATTLE FLAG 24/365 & DARE anyone to molest it or my family.
(I'm descended from one of the "old REBEL families" of AL, GA, MS & TX.)
When I was on Army AD, I always flew a Texas & a CSA battle flag on my radio antennas, including at Ft Drum, NY & W/O even one complaint..
(The USA was MUCH MORE TOLERENT of free speech & free expression in 1975. = Virtually ALL Americans believed in the whole BoR & the US CONSTITUTION back then.)
NOTE: By an act of the DC CITY COUNCIL & SIGNED BY THE Mayor, I am the SOLE person who is allowed to fire RIFLE,MUSKET and/or CANNON SALUTES (up to 10 days each calendar year) in/for CSA Memorial Ceremonies. - As I no longer reside in DC, I am allowed to "designate another person" to "act in your (MY) stead".
(I was informally asked to NOT fire BP Artillery pieces larger than 12-pounder size, because of noise, in DC. - USUALLY the FIRING BATTERY for CSA services is a full battery of 6 six-pounders.= On occasion we had as many as 8 tubes, including a 12" bore MORTAR.)
NOTE: the PROPER number of CANNON SHOTS is NOT 21 but rather 13, i.e., ONE round for each CSA State.
Since I was asked "off-forum" about CSA Memorial Ceremonies in Washington, DC there are SEVERAL each year, including (in some years) on the US CAPITOL grounds, at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, at Ft McNair & at other locations where our CSA veterans are interred.
BTW, I was a member of THE CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL ASSN. of the DISTRICT of COLUMBIA since the 1970s.
I will also mention the yearly CSA Memorial Ceremony at Jackson Circle at ANC on CONFEDERATE DECORATION DAY, which is NEAR but NOT in DC.
